How to Prevent Mold with Industrial Air Purification in Food Processing Areas

Mold is a serious issue that can cause food poisoning and other health problems. Therefore, it is essential to have an industrial air purifier in food processing areas to prevent mold from growing. This blog post will discuss how industrial air purification can help keep your food processing area free of mold !

Industrial Air Purification For Food Processing Areas

Industrial air purifiers work by removing mold  spores from the air. Therefore, This helps prevent them from settling on food and surfaces, where they can grow into mold  colonies. Air purifiers also help to reduce the humidity in the air, which can prevent mold  from growing in the first place. If you are concerned about mold  in your food processing area, industrial air & surface purification systems are a great way to help keep it under control.


Best Industrial Air Purifications For Food Processing

Now that we have gone over how industrial air purifiers work. Let us talk about choosing the right one for food processing!

When choosing the best industrial air purifications for food processing, you should consider the following factors:

  • The size of your space
  • The type of contaminants you need to remove
  • Treat all surfaces with the purifier. (not just near the purifier, but all surfaces)
  • Require low electricity usage
  • Monitor the levels of the unit’s production 24/7 – great for reporting to FSMA
  • Have a sanitizer created and output from the purifier itself, or else the air will only be purifying.
  • Organic and no-chemicals consumed.
  • Be safe while people are present
  • Offer manual adjustments to the unit’s power

If you run a commercial food processing area, you will need a powerful industrial air & surface purifier covering significant cubic footage. In addition, if you are trying to remove pathogens, allergens, smoke, or odors, you will need a technology that can remove these contaminants 24/7 safely. Furthermore, if you want a device that can sanitize all surfaces, you may want to consider ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) technology.

No matter your needs, industrial air purifier technology can help you create a healthier environment for commercial food processing!

While many types of air purification technology are on the market, AirROS is our recommended method for purifying the air and sanitizing surfaces 24/7. It kills mold, including E.coli, salmonella, listeria, coronavirus (COVID), bacteria, viruses, other pathogens, and odor.

How does an AirROS commercial air purification system work?

AirROS is a commercial air and surface purification system that can prevent pathogens, mold , viruses, yeast, and bacteria, reduce cross-contamination, and remove ethylene gas. AirROS purifiers utilize and create ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). First, it kills pathogens and aroma / odor as it passes through the air purifier. In addition, it sanitizes the air that comes out of the purifier, enters the environment, and continues to sanitize all surfaces it contacts. Here is the 2 stage process:


Phase 1- Primary Air Cleaning

Placed within your room’s airflow, air from the environment containing microorganisms enters the purifier’s internal chamber. The reaction chamber creates non-thermal plasma and generates ROS. ROS are comprised of 5 short-lived, highly Reactive Oxygen Species:

  • Atomic oxygen O(3P)
  • Singlet oxygen 1O2
  • Hydroxyl radical .OH
  • Superoxide O2-
  • Peroxynitrite ONOO-

Above all, these break down carbon-to-carbon bonds that sanitize the air and destroy all bacteria, molds, viruses, and other pathogens as they pass through the reaction chamber.


Phase 2- Secondary Surface & Air Cleaning

After that, it provides Surface sanitation and continued Air sanitation. The purified air now diffused into the environment contains longer lived Reactive Oxygen Species:

  • Gas-phased H2O2 (GpHP) or dry hydrogen peroxide
  • Low concentration levels of O3 ozone

These combine and create Hydrogen Trioxide (H2O3) an Active Antimicrobial formed through the peroxone process. This H2O3 is very effective at sanitizing the surfaces and air 24/7.

ROS with H2O3 further sanitizes the room air and long-distance surfaces from the purifier. This commercial air purifier technology is the only one that can provide odor control, long-distance surface treatment, and purify the air all at once. Amazing right? To learn more, watch this video below!
